Other information

Here is a sample custom program we organized with a private tour guide for 3.5 hours in Paris:

9am: your private guide meets you at your hotel at the time you requested. We begin straight away with a little-known rooftop terrace with a 360° view of Paris. Your private tour will also serve as an orientation tour.

9:45am: the “village of Montmartre”: we walk the scenic streets of
Montmartre that Renoir and Van Gogh painted, with splendid views of the city below.

Your guide leads you to the best view of Sacré Coeur, along rue de la borne street. This is bohemian Paris in its full glory.

11:45: the Latin quarter after a transfer by metro. You discover medieval landmarks, the Luxembourg Garden, and Sorbonne – Europe’s oldest university.

12:15: we make a stop at Berthillon, the legendary ice cream parlor. Your guide once patronized this parlor when she was 8 and going to school next door.

12:30pm: Your private guide has just secured a table at a popular bistro. As you sit for lunch, your guide hands you a city map, and helps you plan the rest of your stay in Paris.
